Christie Busted: Port Authority Official Says NJ Governor Lied About Lane Closings, "Has Evidence To Prove It"

Tyler Durden's picture


The sharks are circling Chris Christie who just sprung a bloody leak (either that or the population must really need to be distracted from a horrible January for stocks and what may be coming next). Moments ago the NYT reported that the former Port Authority official who personally oversaw the lane closings on the George Washington Bridge "said that the governor knew about the lane closings when they were happening, and that he had the evidence to prove it." Of course, if such evidence exists, Christie can call it a career after claiming the opposite on numerous occasions in the past month. Of course, one wonders whether Obama would have been impeached by now had the "independent and impartial media" hounded him with the same fervor for his numerous transgressions and repeated lies to the American public. Alas, we will never know the answer.

From the NYT:

In a letter released by his lawyer, the official, David Wildstein, a high school friend of Mr. Christie’s who was appointed with the governor’s blessing at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which controls the bridge, described the order to close the lanes as “the Christie administration’s order” and said “evidence exists as well tying Mr. Christie to having knowledge of the lane closures, during the period when the lanes were closed, contrary to what the governor stated publicly in a two-hour press conference” three weeks ago.


“Mr. Wildstein contests the accuracy of various statements that the governor made about him and he can prove the inaccuracy of some,” the letter added.


The letter marked the first signal that Mr. Christie may have been aware of the closings, something he repeatedly denied during a two-hour press conference earlier this month.

One tangential observation is that if the level of circuses, if not so much bread, is picking up to such extensive levels, and the US public is in such dire need of distraction from their everyday lives, then truly something big is about to hit... or this is simply the traditional pre-election circus act designed to set the stage for the grotesque farce that are the midterm elections.

Suspect Wildstein doesn't have career-ending goods on CC. But even without them, this may be a political wound that will not heal.

He better have the evidence, otherwise it gives Christie the chance to say prove it or STFU.  If nothing is produced, this could be a win for Christie.

huh, so what if he knew about the closings....i did, too. the question is if he ORDERED them or if he was aware the lanes were closed due to his subordinates' orders. 


he should just say "it was the video" and be done with it.

How is this even mildly news when we still haven't found out the following about our alleged President.

1)Who forged his birth certificate?

2)Why is Obama using multiple SS#'s including that of a dead man?

3)Who paid for Obama's college costs (any three letter agencies like CIA, CFR etc involved)?

4)Why are his trasnscripts sealed?

5)Who is his real father (compare pictures of Frank Davis (his real father, US communist party bigwig and pornoking) with him at the same age and draw your own conclusions.

6)How did he get the nickname "bathhouse BarrY" and why are so many of his previousl gay friends suffering the fate of Vince Foster?

So, Christie may have caused a traffic tie up?  His biggest problem is his appetite and being too fat.

I know what you are talking about, but nobody will touch that with a 10 foot pole.  Everytime it's brought up the messenger either disappears or has a change in stance, either way they won't allow a sitting president (real or not) to be taken down.  Also it goes to show you the power, because is true this is the type of blackmail material that people use to control others.  Also for them going after Christie (who I believe did all of this), tells me that something major is coming down the pipe and they are running scared.

Saying that they were "just following orders" didn't work for the Nazis at Neuremburg, why does it work for them in New Jersey?  Where was that miserble fuck "whistleblower" on the day the sheeple were being punished?


Now that I look back, I realize that a life predicated on being obedient and taking orders is a very comfortable life indeed. Living in such a way reduces to a minimum one's need to think.

They believe their line of shit so much that they convinced theirselves that Christie was a threat and blew their wad too early. It's too much for them to even consider a republican even though the entire lot of them are sold out to the oligarchs just like the Dems, this his how absolutely fence post stupid they are in the MSM and why they stroke the shaft and swallow the gravy of their masters.

I can see Boehner, teary eyed with his head in her lap once she finishes scolding him for speaking out. Obama would have never been elected if he had been white. To be a minority and a women is almost untouchable as a democrat. A republican black women would be portrayed as a crack whore in the media, a puppet of white corporatists. Ultimately the media will decide who will lead us, to heaven or hell.

Sometimes a banana is just a banana, everybody knew about lane closures, when the lanes closed pissed off people called their reps including the gov, its why, what was Christy told by whom when? 

No smoking gun here, no evidence of governor gult YET. 

Only the NSA knows the truth and they're staying mum, in spite of this act (intentional lane closures for political punishment) fitting the federal definition for terrorism.

Update: NYT stealth edited lede from "has evidence..." to "says 'evidence exists'...". Also buries the fact that Wildstein was the one fired by Christie and therefore has absolutly no reason to want some payback. The Times article was written by Kate Zernike, a reliable Democratic partisan hack (i.e. "respected journalist") who is evidently the go-to-girl at the NYT when you want to plant a hit piece.

Christie became frends with Obama. That worked well. He was a republican hopeful. Looks kike with the democrats help he blackballed himself. Anyone that's a republican can forget about him.

The democrats are laughing all the way to the next election.

Looks like Hillary wins the next election. A continuation of the Obama/Clintion legacy.

I wouldn't put too much money on Clinton yet.  The Democrat nominee needs the support of blacks to get the nomination and to win.

Can't see blacks thronging to vote for an old white crone.  More importantly, Obama will still have a lock on the black vote and who they support.  Obama does not want his "historic" presidency being upstaged by being bookended by "historic" husband-wife presidencies.  Nor does he want a successor who owes him nothing and is likely to be antagonistic towards him.

Look for Obama to support a Biden or Kerry candidacy and put the black vote behind them, with the aim of having a successor who owes his position to Obama.

Remember, everything Obama does is about Obama, nothing else.

He should take a lead from TO mayor Rob Ford and just apologize or say he was in a "drunken stupor" and drive on...easy!

Rob Ford

- public drunk

- cell video of him smoking crack

- associated with assorted drug dealers

- latest is supposedly having friends in jail beat his ex brother-in-law half to death

All he does is say sorry and stare straight ahead.  After a while people get tired of asking you to resign and then you can go to the bar and get hammered. No Biggie.

"has the evidence to prove it"

Prolly a dumb question, but has anyone actually seen that evidence or is it he said/she said? I have no doubt Christie is guilty, but would rather see it confirmed with facts.

This is uttter horseshit, even by partisan ZH standards

Of course, one wonders whether Obama would have been impeached by now had the "independent and impartial media" hounded him with the same fervor for his numerous transgressions and repeated lies to the American public. Alas, we will never know the answer.

Given the money pissed away in various PAC, super-PACs etc... an independant air-tight investigation carried out by competant people showing BHO guilty of an impeachable offence would cost peanuts in comparison...

Much the same way, the Kochs and other other funders of the denialati are incapable of creating any internally consistent, scientfically rigourous demonstration that AGW is not real... 

You see there are some things that money cannot simply buy...

Christie won 't be ordained for 2016. They'll toss out Rubio as the controlled Candidate, and Rand Paul for those that still vote and still have a shred of hope that voting actually does anything.

The nation fucking hates Frank M. Davis Jr., and wants him gone, so the Establishment will give us Hillary Vs. Rubio or some such nonsense, Christ maybe that other Bush turd. Anything can happen, and the media will do their thing.

Either way, it's going to be revolting and amazing to watch.
